‘Kate The Great’ Tops Vanity Fair’s “Best Dressed” List

kate middleton tops vanity fair's best dressed list

The newest royal is making her name as a fashion icon: the former Kate Middleton, now Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, topped Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List for 2012. Prince Charles reportedly spent $55,000 on designer clothes for the Duchess (I guess this is before Prince William got his inheritance from his mother), but Kate is known for being a “frugal” shopper. She doesn’t even use a dresser but instead shops for herself. Impressive: she hasn’t made a single fashion misstep!

While this is Kate’s third time on the list, her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, made the list for the first time, along with Monaco’s Charlotte Casiraghi. Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain made the list for the first time. Jay-Z made his debut on the list, and Alicia Keyes made the list for only the second time (her first was in 2009). I love Vanity Fair’s “Best Dressed” list: I’ll be looking out for the September issue!
